"Construction of a Skid Row in the 80s"
This 1940 Section of Fine Arts oil-on-canvas mural by Lance W. Hart, “Construction of a Skid Road in the 80’s,” was painted for what was then the Snohomish post office. The mural remains in the original location, which is now the Snohomish city hall.
“Artists like Hart were required to submit a series of sketches or designs for their murals before final approval. To see a sketch of “Construction of a Skid Road” that is housed in the National Archives, click here.” (depts.washington.edu)
